The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario, Canada is a traditional Hindu place of worship that was built by the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha. The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, which is headed by Mahant Swami Maharaj, is a global spiritual organization within the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism. The mandir was built in 18 months and consists of 24,000 pieces of hand-carved Italian carrara marble, Turkish limestone and Indian pink stone.[1] The mandir is the largest of its kind in Canada and was constructed according to guidelines outlined in ancient Hindu scriptures.[2] The grounds spread over 18 acres and in addition to the mandir, include a haveli and the Heritage Museum.[3] The mandir is open daily to visitors and for worship.
